Fattoush Salad

Some guys I used to work with would call this fat arse salad, for the obvious name reasons, an amazing salad to make with the divine organic radish that are around at the moment.


1 round wholemeal Mountain bread/ Tannor bread

2 organic Lebanese cucumbers, finely diced (if very fresh, no need to peel)

2 organic tomatoes, finely diced

½ cup organic radish, finely diced

½ organic red capsicum, finely diced

4 organic spring onions, finely diced

2 tablespoons organic mint, finely chopped

½ cup organic parsley, finely chopped

Dressing juice of 1 organic lemon

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


Bake the Lebanese bread in a medium oven for about 10 minutes. This will make the bread nice and crisp.

Combine the rest of the ingredients with the bread and toss with the dressing

Our farm-Scattagnolo...

Ok so the packing sheds are nearly ready to go, organic inspector is on his way its all happening. I feel like breaking out in song, "ei i ei i o...and on that farm, we have lots of snails ei i ei i oooo". To explain the quantity of snails we have at the moment, there is a new packing shed which has been erected, we are not sure how but snails have made a home inside, and if you you didn't know you would think that they are the walls. I have never seen so many snails in the one place before. Escargo anyone...
Its amazing they are a perfect reflection of our farm at this moment...slow...
So this is a picture of our farm, even just looking at the views make me happy, imagine how happy the veggies are going to be. Till next week, Farmer Ange x
